You '69 fans are probably well aware of this very interesting Avalon show, but I just stumbled upon it:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd69-04-06.sbd.fm.cotsman.9492.sbeok.shnf

This features (IMO) the scariest, most apocalyptic "Death Don't Have No Mercy" ever recorded, complete with a poor scrambled soul in the audience moaning "I don't want to die" in the background, and some seriously strange Garcia vocals.

If it's TOO creepy, check out any of Bobby's songs from the same night; he's singing so badly it makes ya laugh. Comic relief is needed, certainly, after that "Death". Weir's vocals here are far funnier than his Yellow Dog Story...

IMO the definitive Death Don't, the hardest I've ever heard Jerry attack the "your family's gone!" line, great solo, the whole vibe of it is so dark. The That's It for the Other One suite from 4-6 is awesome as well.

This was the third night of a three-night stand at the Avalon. It has some remarkable performances, including that psychedelic Death Don't Have No Mercy, a very sweet Baby Blue, and a lively and upbeat Lovelight. The plug was pulled when they went past the Avalon's curfew, so they finish Viola Lee Blues acapella. Altogether an evocative artifact from an obviously lysergic-drenched night.

I have always preferred the 5th, but this night has some interesting moments as well. Quality is a bit off relative to the fifth though...

You might just get the whole of the 4-5-6 Avalon run AND the run in Boston 4/21-23.

I bought that Gram Parsons CD for my partner who is a long time GP/Emmylou fan. She was thrilled with the music, but less impressed with the over-ambitious packaging (booklet included) which fell apart after it had been opened a couple of times.
